In Spain, an Escola is a soccer “school” run by a local soccer club. It is a recreational program designed to prepare young players with the foundational skills to go on and play on older, competitive teams.
Escola students are slowly introduced to the technical, tactical, physical and psychological skills necessary to become proficient as competitive soccer players. They are also taught the values of hard work, competition, respect and teamwork.
At TFA Willamette, the Escola is the beginning for local players from Albany, OR and the surrounding areas who have a goal of trying out for a competitive soccer team someday.
The Escola curriculum is based upon Horst Wein’s Funiño format which was used by Barcelona’s academy coaches to develop their own curriculum. It uses a basic 3v3 game format which teaches players the basics of the TFA Way. This small-sided format provides young players with maximum playing time, touches on the ball, encouraging them to be creative and begins to develop game intelligence.
